Delete Red Light & Speed Camera POI

 

I have a GPS 3790LMT. I am trying to delete the Red Light and Speed Camera from the Coustom POI file. I have try from the POI Loader and they are still there. I am trying to update the POI file. I can update the file but the old and new file shows up in the GPS.

Does poi loader recognise the old file?

Early versions of poi loader would not delete the old file. what version of poi loader do you have?

You could hook it to the computer and go in and delete the file also.

Hook your GPS to you computer

Then, navigate to [nuvi]:\Garmin\POI and see what .gpi files are there. You might have one or several .gpi files there depending on how you loaded them.

If there is one that is obviously the redlight cameras file, then delete it (same for speed).

If you pointed POI Loader to a folder that held other files in addition to the redlight and speed cameras, you may have to delete the .gpi file that contains them and then go back and reload other custom POIs to accomplish what you want.

When I put in

the url address it states that it can't find it.

Makes no sense unless

First off, your *.gpi is located in the directory on your Nuvi called "POI". Most likely called CustomPOI.gpx. Unless you have changed these Red Light and Speed Camera names you wouldn't end up with two files. Check the names of these files carefully.

This is what happened to my nuvi 760

I have never made multiple POI.gpi files in the nuvi but here is how I ended up with two of them. An older version of POI Loader always named the file POI.gpi, so the older POIs exist in the nuvi in that file.

A later version of POI Loader named another file Custom POIs.gpi, because that is the name I entered in the name field in POI Loader. Many of the POIs were duplicates in both files and I was getting multiple alerts.

One way to fix this would be to delete POI.gpi in the nuvi and leave Custom POIs.gpi there, but I chose to run POI Loader first to "remove all custom POIs," and then run POI Loader again to load my latest POIs. Problem solved.

I don't have

POIs.gpi or Custom POIs.gpi. If I can locate them I would delete them and problem solve. Anyway, I have a bigger problem, my computer will not show the GPS drive letter when I plug in the GPS, Any suggestion.

Does POI Loader see the nuvi?

If POI Loader sees the nuvi, then open My Computer and you should see a drive for the nuvi. Double click it to open it. Look inside the POI folder. If you are not comfortable looking inside the nuvi folders, do not do it since it is possible to accidently delete the wrong thing! I am assuming this is a PC and not a Mac.

Instead of looking inside the nuvi, run POI Loader to "remove all custom POIs," and then run POI Loader again to load the latest POIs, as I said previously.

The computer see

the nuvi but don't show a drive. The poi folder is empty when I last looked at it.

Make sure you check any SDHC data card you may have in the unit.

Do you have Windows folder settings set to allow you to see hidden or system files?

Whenever we speak to someone about hooking their nuvi to their PC, we always wind up with instructing them to safely disconnect the nuvi from the computer.

Most of us do that by looking in the System Tray (usually in the lower right corner of the screen) for an Icon that looks like a thumb drive with a green arrow over it. The green arrow is pointing to the left and slightly downward on my XP machine.

If your nuvi is connected to your PC, try to find that Icon in your system tray. If you hover your mouse over various Icons, a box will appear that describes what is beneath the cursor.

Find this icon and left-click it. The nuvi drive should be the top (or perhaps the only) drive that can be disconnected. Make a note of that drive letter and then look in windows explorer for it.

I Give Up

I just can't delete the old Red Light and Speed Camera file from my GPS 3790LMT. I will just see if it will work with the new poi and the old poi. I just can't fine the old file when I look for it.
